Question about Mitsubishi HS-U510 VHS VCR

Open Question

Mitsubishi hs510 I just received an old Mitsubishi hs U-510 VCR that was working but when I plug it in and push the power button there is no response. Nothing lights up but when I unplug and plug it back in I can hear a sound as if it were going to power up, however - nothing happens when the power button is pushed on the VCR or the remote. Also, I put a tape in the unit and now it will not eject. Please help. Dee

When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things. The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or have the belt replaced. Belts are inexpensive but sometimes difficult to get to. Most of the repair expense will be in the labor. Unplug the unit and take the cover off. Hopefully there will be enough clearance so you can get to the tape. Try to find the motor and belt that is responsible for operating the eject mechanism. The motor will look like a shiny cylinder, about the diameter of a quarter and will have a plastic pulley attched to the shaft. You can rotate the pulley and belt with your fingers and manually eject the tape. If the tape is around the spindles and video head, you will need to manually move the mechansim that retracts the spindles and returns the tape to the cartridge. While you may be successful in getting the tape out, you need to find out what caused the problem in the first place. Putting in another tape will most like become stuck again unless the problem is identified and resolved. Also look for a broken spring or cracked gear (missing teeth) in the eject mechanism. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance Good luck! - Jim

No manual or remote


Following the instructions I have been able to program a Philips SRU4105WM/17 universal remote using the first Mitsubishi code from the code list. However, I had to have the universal remote "learn" the vcr/tv button function (I assigned it to the Exit button). Good thing I still have the original Mitsubishi remote:-) I haven't tried having the universal remote learn all the functions, such as Cancel, Counter Reset, Audio Function, Video Function etc. I could see if I'm able to program those, if you'd like. LMK if you have any other questions.

Language setup for Mitsubishi HS-U510 VCR


I contacted Mitsubishi support. It is very likely the 510 and the 520 are similar. I was told to look at the back of the VCR (in the middle and lower) for a "timer reset" button. Pushing it will put you into initial setup mode and you can set your VCR to english menu. It works!

Play button does not work


Check the little drive pulley underneath the mech. It is very common for this to crack or break and not drive the takeup reel.

Check batteries in remote- maybe they are weak/dead. Do the buttons on VCR itself do anything? Unplug VCR for a few minutes, perhaps this will clear the condition. Mitsubishi doesn't show your model, but perhaps this one will be close enough: http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/j/i/18326/HSU449.html?cid=42
